To ensure our employee and customer safety, we will be operating with some changes you need to be aware of.
We will require that our customers and employees wear face masks when you are in our vehicles. We recommend you wear them when in our store or office as well. We can provide you with face masks if you do not have them.
Until we can get back to normal, we will be operating with only two put in locations on the weekends. Shelvin Rock and Jamesville.
To provide better safety for all of you, on weekends, we do require that you drop your group off at your put in location prior to coming to the canoe rental. This will allow one or a few people to drive your vehicles to us and we will transport fewer people at a time to the put in location. We have links below to show you where to go for the put in location you choose.
Jamesville is a 4 mile trip. We have listed the estimated time it might take you to float it straight through without stopping based on what you float on.

Shelvin Rock is a 7 mile trip. We have listed the estimated time it might take you to float it straight through without stopping based on what you float on.

We have been in business since 1993 and have always focused on building a family friendly environment for everyone. We are family owned and operated and do our best to provide the best experience possible.
No matter what you are looking to rent, we have you covered. Offering rentals for rafts, tubes canoes and kayaks. Plenty of spaces for camping for groups of all sizes.
Get away and enjoy a day on the James River. This river provides a great opportunity to enjoy the outdoors by floating or fishing year-round.
We also have a store that sells grocery, snacks, drinks, adult beverages and ice.
Smokin on the River is a restaurant that serves great food just across the street from the Canoe Rental and Store.
